Wireless Streams Hot or Not? – Are you looking for the best bluetooth speaker less than S$100?

Are wireless streams really value for the pumped up vibes to pump out your stress?

Look at the pic above. Ain’t it cute and dashing?

And not only that, this device is easier for ya to bring it around without a plug-in into your phone or your iPod isn’t it?

Or perhaps this comes in timely with the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as seen below

Yes, that’s right!

Better thing – it doesn’t cost less than S$100. Which is pretty lower than most bluetooth speakers with outstanding qualities!

And you can even receive news on the weather and the sports updates too!

Knowing whether Manchester City has scored a new goal or if the Red Sox has won, or if another hurricane is moving upwards the East Coast.

But just how up-to-date is it overall?

Let’s look at some of the negative reviews:

Above 1 comment has denoted about the security flaws in the bluetooth speaker. Apparently, the user’s neighbours are able to receive music at the speaker from his phone. Click here to find out the range of bluetooth connectivity and the distance isn’t mentioned in the products specs. This allows unauthorised use by anybody nearby who’s not close to you, as long it is audible enough for that person to use it. And at home, doors can be closed to cut off sound to the unauthorised user. But how about in public? For example, in an office environment or a gym class where if it is left powered on, any user nearby can just connect his device to this speaker and blast the music loud on!

Well, this Amazon Echo Dot seems to have some problems with the security issues.

But that’s only provided if the user leaves it switched on and unsupervised.

What if your neighbour who connects to the device doesn’t want to play the music for his or her own sake, and only wanting to play it to let you hear not so pleasant things, such as an unauthorised recording of the main user’s privacy attacked?

 

If users can just pretend that the security flaws do not affect them, they can just brush it off. But I’m sure a majority of users feel a lot about this very much!

And how about other complaints the users have received about this product?

Yes, there are. Synchronising the Echo Dot with the smartphone or tablet seems to be problematic at times.

It’s online shopping anyway and there’s no way anyone can test demo before buying. Unless you are buying from sites like Carousell, where you get to meet the seller before taking the product.

That’s why it is always imperative to always check the product from friends or seek other people opinions before risking to get your product right away.

For the case of Amazon Echo Dot in this article, we now know, after some investigation into the negative comments, what are the limitations of it if you ever purchase it online.

You don’t just check on the price and technical capabilities.

You really have to weigh the risks of the limitations you may receive, based on the 360 look at both positive and negative reviews.

Surely, the picture looks tempting as the display is beautiful.

Well, don’t be fooled by good looks of the display pictures.
